Works great! Glad I decided to buy this app! I was nervous about buying a pig in a poke, but I read the other reviews and decided to risk it. This completely restores my high volumes and the "Smart" mode is very clever. I'm running CM10 Jellybean on Epic 4g Touch and it makes my whole phone much better. Thanks!!
Great fix for Epic Touch 4G I decided to use my old Samsung Epic Touch as a media player only, the sound quality was nowhere near my Galaxy S III, especially since the volume was so much lower. I tried several different apps with equalizers and also tweaking the DSP Manager but that wouldn't do anything except make the sound crack. I searched XDA left and right for a volume fix and finally came across this app. Worked amazingly!!! I compared the sound on my S2 with my co-workers HTC One (with the Beats equalizer). With this app installed the sound quality was equal if not better then the HTC One. (Using Headphones) Well worth the $1 and some change.
Does what it's supposed to but a few bugs After flashing over Jelly Bean on my Epic 4G Touch I noticed the sound wasn't loud enough. I remembered the Voodoo kernel patches from back in the day and thought I'd try this. It definitely works well. However anytime I'm listening to my headphones and any other phone notification sounds, it cuts the sound back to whatever the stock setting is. It also does it sometimes when skipping music tracks and I have to manually readjust the volume down until it cuts back in then I can push the volume back up. Also when the device boots I have to manually start the app in order for it to work. I used script manager to set it at boot but still it'd be nice if it would boot with the device. Once these bugs are fixed and the interface is a little more fleshed out it's a 5 star app for sure.
Not working on 4.3 Was on 4.2.2 and it worked flawlessly. Then when I upgraded to cm 10.2 with android 4.3 every time I hook my headphone I need to go through the wizard again and it not automatic like it used to be.. Love this app please fix this!!
Not much boost on ICS I do not need really that much this app. It's only 1.5 -3db on ICS for galaxy note. Bought it to support great developer. Now it works 10.5+dB on JB leaked LSA! Will test on cm 10.1 soon.
works 80% i cant get the volume up past 80% or it crashes and returns the volume to default (low output). other then that it works great and makes a huge difference. too bad it doesn't support speaker phone output.

Don’t install anymore a driver file on /system partition.
Faster volume changes, use fewer CPU resources.
Jelly Bean Note is 9dB quieter than ICS (like Gingerbread) so the insane +10.5dB (relative) boost is back.
